The Salty Islanders of Fort St. James won gold in the Carrier-Sekani Family Services winter games hockey tournament.

The Islanders defeated the Canyon Bears of Moricetown 10-5 on Sunday to earn top spot in the six team tournament.

The Bears, which featured a couple Burns Lake players, took home the silver. Earlier in the day, the Tribe team captured the bronze medal by downing the Burns Lake Bruins 10-4. The hockey tourney was one of several sports featured in the CSFC Winter Games.

The Salty Islanders are named in honour of Barry Salt, “A great man who played hockey in Fort St. James,” said Chris French.

Salt died in a drowning accident and French said “Fort St. James lost a very fun and loving man who loved to play sports.”
